MEAN AND APPARENT TIME. 

Mean Time is the time indicated by a well-regulated clock or watch run- 
ning without variation, so as to m-ske the day, or 24 hours, equal to the 
Mean Time at which the Sun comes to the meridian during the year. Ap- 
parent Time is the time which makes the Sun come to the meridian every- 
day at 12 o'clock. On account of the elipticity of the earth's orb-t, and 
its inclination to the equator, the sun does not always come to the merid- 
ian in exactly the same time ; and hence, Apparent Time is irregular, and 
either gradually falls behind Mean Time, or gains on it, sometimes to the 
amount of more than sixtee-i miuntes. When the^Sun comes to the mer^j 
ian earlier than the Mean Time, it is said to be fast : but when it comesB 
it later, it is said to be slow ; and the amount by which Apparent TimJ 
differs from Mean Time is called the Equation of Time. In order to set 
a timepiece according to Mean Time, it is necessary to have a dial, or noon 
mark ; and allowance must be made for the Equation of Time. This 
Almanac is in Mean Time,

DOMESTIC REGIP^ , # 

Pork, Beef or Mutton — How to PnesBivf E'4MWjP^3fca -four gal- , 
Ions, coarse sugar, one and a half pounds ; BaltpetKpfftfW^M^M^mon salt 
eight pounds; put the whole into a clean pot amWetlt bmP^^RHjly taking 
off the scum ; and when no more scum will riaoLpour it into the vessery^u in- 
tend to keep it in and when cold, put in your mfht This is all that i^ feces- 
sary, if you head up your cask ; but if kept as-"a«house piekle in an opsMfces- 
sel, when fresh, is put in weekly, or from titte tu*time ; then in that case^tbe 
pickle should be reboiled every six week's.. 

Cubing Hams and Bacon" --'Use equal quantities of common Soda and 
Saltpeter — one ounce and a half of each to tee fourteen pounds of Hata or 
Bacon, using the usual quantity of salt. The Soda prevents that hardtfess in 
(be lean of the Bacm which is so often found, and keeps it quite melio-.v all 
through, b&sides being a preventive of rust. 

Substitute fob Soda. A lady sends the following, which we publish for 
the information of house-keepers: 

To the ashes cf corn cobs add a little boiling water After allowing it to 
ftand for a few minutes, pour off the lye, which can be use 1 at once with an 
acid [sour milk, or vinegar ] It rnskes the bread as light almost as Sod!!. 

To Save Pobk.— Mr. John II. Taylor, gives through the Co'umbus Enqui 
rer the following recipe for saving pork in an economical manner. He says 
several gentlemen have successfully practiced it the past year in Harris county. 
' ' To 5 gallons of water add 7 pounds of salt, 1 pint of syrup, and 1 te,a- 
spoonful of pounded saltpet. e After the pork is cooled in the ustal w»y, 
pack in barrels and cover with the above mixture — let it remain four or five 
weeks, and hang End smoke in the usual manner ." 
Thus twenty pounds of salt are made to save one thousand pounds of pork. 

Confederate Dye— To Make a Beautiful Blue. — Take elder berries, 
mash them »nd press out the juice To two gallons of juice add about one ounce 
of copperas and two ounces of alum. Dip the thread in this thoroughly, and 
air, and the dye is set 

Sausage Meat. — After reveral years experience, I have found the follow- 
ing recipe to be the best for preparing sausage meat I have ever see 



To 50 lbs. of chopped meat, add lj lbs of salt, 4 oz. cf good blagPJpeTjaer,. 
14 table spoonfuls of sage. £&; • ,«?•'• 

How to Make Tallow Candles Hotd.— Take the leaf of the Prickly 
Pear, say four or five cut up and boil with one pound of. tallow, and. your 
candles will surprise you for hardness. tttt 

To Preserve Butter. — Take two quarts of best common salt, one ounce 
of sugar, one ounce saltpetre, all finely pulverized and d.y: then thoroughly 
mix the whole together, and take one ounce of the mixture for each pound of 
but'er, work well into the mass and close it up for use. 

It should be remembered that butterthu3 prepared requires to stand a 
month before it is ready' for use. If it is sooner opened tho salt is not surfi- 
'ciently blended uitli it, and sometimes tho coolness of the saltpetre will be 
.'perceived, which totally disappears afterward?. " 

1 Batter being prepared for immediate use, had better be put up without the 
'saltpetre, but the sugar in the proportions above given, may beusetiwith 
jgreat advantage, as the sugar gives butter an extra good fl.Mror, and has a 
tendency to keep it sweet, and prevent its becoming rancid. 'S,
